Last week you voted your asses off (over 4,000 votes for the winner alone) to make sure Vanessa O'Donnell of Ooh La La Dessert Boutique took home the title of Hottest Chef in Houston. Today, she goes on to compete nationally in the first round of Eater's Hottest Chef in America tournament.
While we concede that today's competition between Eater Las Vegas and Eater Denver is not going to be easy, we have faith that O'Donnell's sweet treats and genuine smile can win over America just as easily as they did Houston. Head on over to Eater National and cast your vote, we know you're good for it.
